My boyfriend and I arrived in Paris with very little idea of where and what to eat for dinner. This restaurant was right down the street from our hotel so we gave it a try. Service was excellent and food was fantastic! Definitely worth a visit.

It was our first meal in Paris and obviously had high expectations. Le Canon definitely lived up to them. Not understanding half the menu, my fiance and I ordered the fish plate that the waiter recommended. My fiance is not a fish lover and he cleaned his plate! We then stayed for dessert and after dinner cocktails. Our waiter was... More

Had a few coffees and an onion soup (totally average) there this lunchtime. About to leave, a mouse runs from under my chair next to my feet. I get up and discretely (im too nice) tell the waiter. What does he reply? "Oh you know, Paris is full of mice everywhere"... I tell his colleague about it and he says... More

We ate here twice while staying in the area of the National. We found the service to be fine, and the food to be above-average for this type of place. It's a casual diner type place, but the food was quite good. I had a chicken club and frankly, I don't recall what my husband had, but I do remember... More

Good food, great service and friendly waiter! Good place to hang out with friends! It was our first meal out in our Paris neighborhood, we only spoke a little French but we pleasantly surprised to be able to converse in English and have a menu with subtitles!

being open at 6am was a great help, the coffee and croissant was perfect every morning. AS with many, a great place to people watch from the sidewalk seating.

Was here twice for breakfast - first for Simple (coffee, orange juice and pastry) then for Complet (coffee, orange juice, bread with butter and jam, and omelette with chips and salad). I wasn't expecting the breakfast to be so big and was pleasantly surprised. Everything was very tasty, the waiters were very polite and service was quick.

Perfect spot to sit and watch the world go by, nowhere else would it be ok to sit on the edge of a large junction and drink cocktails. In Paris it is just the thing to do
